Proposals for Plymouth

We’re interested in how artists’ impressions and visual mock-ups get used as part of the planning and redevelopment of places. Usually, they are made by architects and property developers as part of public consultations and PR campaigns, as explainers of what will follow. The proposals playfully highlight, question and challenge systems of decision-making and power in public spaces, as well as expanding ideas of what is possible. They are hopeful messages that speak to the importance of community, offer rally cries to those who are trying to make change happen in difficult circumstances, and highlight important spaces for culture, education and togetherness.

Viewing the proposals allows people to imagine the text-works in real life whilst giving us space to consider how these currently not-yet-realised ideas could be ‘put to use’ in the future.
